Hi, I'm Dr. Martin of the Martin Clinic. Tell me if this sounds familiar to you.
Had a patient come in recently with very, very low energy, weight gain in spite of not changing their diet at all, and they were even getting hair loss. They had gone through traditional testing. They had blood work done, and it came back within normal limits. They had their thyroid checked, and once again, everything seemed to be all right.
But obviously with those clues, they weren't feeling well, and they weren't well.
We look at things differently at the Martin Clinic. We look for those clues and how to test them properly.
For example, the thyroid, you know again the thyroid never acts independently. That is the issue. You have to look holistically at a person. For example, the thyroid can slow down when estrogen goes up, coming out of the ovaries.So that's important, that you test estrogen levels and not just the thyroid.
One of the biggest things that we see in our office on a daily basis, and people have no clue, is problem with insulin. Well they often traditionally will get their blood sugar tested.
And they say, well doc I'm not a diabetic. But what they didn't have tested was their insulin resistance, and insulin resistance is a major clue for all sorts of issues with your health.
I'll give you another example. Inflammation. Now usually, and medicine will agree with this, that inflammation is at the root of almost all diseases. It's certainly a factor. Unfortunately, it is not routinely tested, and it can be very silent, there's no symptoms necessarily with a very silent inflammation.
Well, we at the Martin Clinic test for all those things. We look at things that are very important in your body, like nitric oxide is how your blood vessels actually open up. We look for deficiencies, malabsorption, that you would get. You might be eating, but you might not be absorbing all your nutrients. We look for that.
Here's a common thing that we look for at the Martin Clinic, and we test for, and that is leaky gut, where the lining of the gut is allowing, literally allowing candida, yeast, fungus, parasites into the blood stream. Again, where most traditional testing will not pick this up.
In the next video, I am going to show you how you can have all these things that I talked about tested, and tested properly.
